Blonde wigs are an amazing way to experiment with colour especially if you don't want to dye your natural hair for it. But blonde wigs do require a little more attention to keep them looking their best. Here are the best products for blonde wigs you need in your collection.
Best Shampoo And Conditioner For Blonde Wigs
For blonde hair, keeping it as moisturised as possible is key in keeping it looking and feeling healthy. One way you can ensure this is by regularly washing your blonde wigs with sulphate-free shampoos.
Washing any wig is integral in keeping them in their best condition but with blonde wigs in particular, sulphate-free options will ensure your wig is cleaned without stripping it of natural oils and proteins–something wigs already lack due to being wigs and not attached to a scalp. Redken's Blonde Idol shampoo and conditioner are great options for this.

The Best Purple Shampoo For Blonde Wigs
When you have blonde hair, you most likely want it to stay blonde without any coppery and brassy tones that could ruin the golden look you're going for.
To avoid these on your blonde wig (especially if you dyed it yourself) incorporate a purple shampoo into your blonde wig care routine.
Function of Beauty allows you to blend up a custom formula purple shampoo to take care of your blonde locks and any other issues you find you're dealing with when it comes to your blonde wig.

For a more affordable option, try John Frieda's Violet Crush for Blondes Purple Shampoo or PRO:VOKE's Touch Of Silver Strengthening Purple Shampoo. Both are highly-rated and easily accessible drugstore purple shampoo options for blonde wigs.
Best Way To Attach Blonde Wigs
Apart from products to keep your blonde hair looking the best, it's also important to find a good way to attach your blonde wigs. Glue, combs and clips can cause damage to not only your natural hair but also the wig itself as they can be too harsh when used excessively.
Instead, try the Wig Fix. It's a silicone hair gripper designed to gently but effectively keep wigs secured. It's available in five shades designed to suit a variety of skin tones and needs.
Best Oil Serum For Blonde Wigs
We always suggest only using lightweight styling products for your wigs and for blonde wigs, this is no exception. A styling oil can be a great way to add shine and seal in moisture on a wig and for blonde wigs, we love the Kérastase Blond Absolu Huile Cicaextreme Oil.
It's lightweight so it won't weigh down your blonde wigs and thanks to ingredients including strengthening actives, hyaluronic acid and edelweiss oil, it will help keep your golden wigs looking healthy and bright. As an added bonus, it also offers heat protection up to 230°C, saving you a time (and money) in your blonde wig care routine.
As with any hair oil, use it sparingly to avoid overloading your wig with products as this may lead to product build up which can make your wigs look dull and even lead to damage if not washed out correctly.

Best Way To Protect Blonde Wigs From The Sun
We all know sunscreen is vital in our skincare routines but what about our hair–specifically, blonde wigs? UV rays can damage hair lipids and lead to dry, dull looking hair. This effect is even more damaging to blonde wigs as they're colour treated which makes them more susceptible to UV damage.
To combat this, add a sun protectant to your wig care routine. This is especially important for blonde wigs to prevent unwanted lightening, dulling and dryness. Hair In The Sun by SACHAJUAN is a leave-in serum protects hair from potential UV damage and colour fading.
